OBJECTIVES: Angiogenesis is one of the main characteristic features of malignant gliomas. Phosphorylated signal transducer and activator of transcription factor 3 (pSTAT3) is not only involved in glioma cell proliferation, anti-apoptosis, and immunosuppression but also plays a key role in cell migration and invasion. Constitutively, activated pSTAT3 induces expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor VEGFR, leading to endothelial cell proliferation and abnormal microvascular formation causing peritumoral edema (PTE)...

Pineal cysts are usually benign, fluid-filled sacs and most pineal cysts are asymptomatic. Sudden death specifically related to pineal cysts is extremely uncommon. A literature review of the pertinent databases, including PubMed, Google Scholar, Scopus, and Web of Science, was carried out to review the existing literature describing sudden death in patients with pineal cysts. In the evaluation of 49 articles, it was found that four reports discussed the unexpected death of patients who had pineal cysts. A total of four cases of sudden death and a pineal cyst were reported...

OBJECTIVES: Nearly 40% of pediatric epilepsies have a genetic basis. There is significant phenotypic and genotypic heterogeneity, especially in epilepsy syndromes caused by sodium channelopathies. Sodium channel subunit 1A (SCN1A)-related epilepsy represents the archetypical channel-associated gene that has been linked to a wide spectrum of epilepsies of varying severity. Subsequently, other sodium channels have also been implicated in epilepsy and other neurodevelopmental disorders. This study aims to describe the phenotypes in children with sodium channelopathies from a center in Southern India...

Cervical spine metastasis from primary intracranial solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) is an extremely rare clinical entity. This report focuses on its metastatic tendency, radiological imaging, management plan, and follow-up strategies in view of its long latency period for metastasis. A 35-year-old female presented with right-side cervical radiculopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging spine showed C7 vertebral body collapse with retropulsion and neural compression. Two years ago, the patient had surgical resection of intracranial SFT (World Health Organization grade 3) with no evidence of recurrence on follow-up imaging...

The growing prevalence of dementia makes it important for us to better understand its pathophysiology and treatment modalities, to improve the quality of life of patients and caregivers. Alzheimer's disease (AD), a neurodegenerative disease, is the most common form of amnestic dementia in the geriatric population. Pathophysiology of AD is widely attributed to aggregation of amyloid-beta (Aβ) plaques and hyperphosphorylation of tau proteins. Initial treatment modalities aimed to increase brain perfusion in a non-specific manner...

Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a group of both clinically and genetically heterogeneous neurodegenerative disorders. SCA 46 is a rare autosomal dominant ataxia initially described in a Dutch family, clinically characterized by ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, cerebellar dysarthria, and varied oculomotor abnormalities. SCA 46 has recently been discovered to be associated with a mutation in phospholipase D 3 gene.

OBJECTIVES: Attention is an essential part of cognitive functions for all learning in the school environment. The screening of attentional deficits constitutes an important field of research, given its relationship with other cognitive functions and the neurocognitive profiling of Moroccan adolescents in school. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A study was conducted over 3 months. A comparative and predictive method is used, the Bells test, to assess the state of neglect of these students, as well as the detection of attention deficit...

OBJECTIVES: Effective interventions for cannabis use disorders are fairly limited. The present randomized controlled trial (RCT) aimed to compare the reduction in cannabis use (number of days cannabis used) with brief intervention and simple advice in patients with cannabis use disorder. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This non-blinded and parallel two-group RCT included 100 male patients with cannabis use disorder. A semi-structured pro forma and severity of dependence scale (SDS) were used...

Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV) can be applied widely from osteoporotic to metastatic fractures. Pain, radiculopathy, spinal cord compression, pulmonary embolism, and infection are common complications of this procedure. However, rare complications such as intradural cement leakage have also been reported. There is little or no data on the results obtained after the late intervention. In addition, the midline total laminectomy method, which is the classical method, was predominantly used in intradural cement leaks after PV...
